    However... English cannot reach into certain spaces because of the culture it was built in...... in English, a word is just a word, how the next word follows, or how the person says it, determines the emotion inside......

    ... however, in some Japanese (in the past, it was: all) words have an emotion in each of them... despite how you use it, or how you say it, it'll always mean it... as if it, itself had an emotion.. ^_^

    Or we could go to Latin for the universal language... they already do that for the names of animals so you don't have to translate "platapus" into 32 languages...

    and we would sound awesome saying things like "E Peribus Unim" and "Et Cetera" and "Et Tu Brute"

    but of course, it would be easier for American and European people to learn Latin cuz our languages are very similar and based on Latin...

    but then our Asian and Middle Eastern and African brothers would be left out to dry, now wouldn't they?

    ... hmmmm... but, it's kinda cool that there's hundreds if not thousands of ways to say "onion"...

    O_o ...that seriously doesn't match your avatar... XD

    ... o.o ...don't we already speak one language already? ... music? ^u^ Sure, there's "love", but because all people have different opinions on it... music is the one thing that we don't have to talk or discuss to listen to... (people tend to just rant... making things worse off than it is)

My major is also going to be on linguistics so if only language were to be spoken i will not have a career or any fun to investigate.

    English as world language...I don't know. It is simple with regards with other langauges but it is lacking something. For starters, it doesn't have cool characters like most Asian countries do.
    I agree with Yuki here. No one should be asked to learn just one language. It will make the other beautiful languages disappear. A common will be good, but it is hard to select one. English, I don't think so.

    What some of my love potion, O sweet Kedar?

    we should be able to speak whatever language we want. it would represent the induviduality of a country and show that we're not all the same.
